Open Learning, Office of Digital Learning
Award presented by 
Eric Evans, Director, Lincoln Laboratory

The next recipient of the Bringing out the Best award is the Director of the MITx Program. Her name is Dana Doyle and, after only two years in this role, her colleagues tell us that she has had a dramatic impact on the program. MITx works with faculty members and teams from all departments across MIT to create courses that spread knowledge to eager learners throughout the world.

Her colleagues say that she has worked diligently to make sure that the Digital Learning Fellows across MIT are empowered to bring MITx capabilities to their departments. But Dana’s efforts are not just externally focused. Her colleagues applaud the way she motivates her staff and actively supports their professional development.

As one member of her team shared, “Dana has positively transformed the way people work together. Her influence is seen well beyond our immediate department. Her communicative style and willingness to work with leadership has helped us to improve decision-making processes and provide solutions. As result, our team has been able to contribute more fully to Open Learning, to MIT, and to the online learners around the world who are counting on us.”

Dana, congratulations on your Excellence Award!
